(Reuters) – Tencent, China’s biggest social network and online entertainment firm, is nearing a deal to buy a majority stake in Supercell Oy, which will value the mobile game maker at more than $9 billion, a source familiar with the matter said.

Tencent plans to buy the stake in Supercell, the Finnish company behind the mobile game ‘Clash of Clans‘, from SoftBank Group Corp.

The Wall Street Journal first reported the deal on Wednesday.
